Indian Summer Sangria

Here in the mid-west we are having a bit of an indian summer! It's November and we've had weather in the 60s and 70s. On a nice weekend Sangria is a great refreshing drink. This was a really easy recipe and it was unmistakably delicious!

What you'll need:

2 bottles red wine (any kind you like I used a blend an a Malbec)
2 oranges
2 lemons
2 limes
1 cup strawberries and raspberries
1 cup pineapple
large splash of orange juice (up to but no more than 1/4 cup)
4 shots liqueur of your choice (I used elderberry liqueur)
4 Tbl. Sugar
8 cups gingerale (add right before serving)

Cut the fruit up into wedges or slices, sqeueeze the juice and throw in the fruit liqueur, juice and sugar and let it sit overnight in the refrigerator to infuse all of the flavor. Add the gingerale just before serving!


  1. What a great recipe. I had my first "real" sangria at a Cuban restaurant this summer. I don't even like red wine, but I loved it.


  2. I love both red and white wine, but if white wine is more of "your thing" you can find white wine sangria recipes out there too... I am a fan of the traditional red though!

  3. I can attest to the fact that this recipe was AMAZING! ... So amazing, it almost tipped me right over :)
